Thanks for this.
I meant, removing all files which were downloaded and installed to my system during the kdenlive installation. Before installation of kdenlive I had 4GB more space, xcode and macports were already installed at that moment.
When I am searching for the term "kdenlive" then I only find folders with small file sizes which never sum up to something like 4GB. And I cannot find a uninstall file either. And I guess a regular deinstallation of kdenlive wouldn'T work, as it's seemingly not properly installed. How can it be properly uninstalled then ...
That page contains the instructions that should remove all files that were downloaded; namely, those in /opt/local/var/macports, which is where downloads and build files are located. In fact, the last step is rm -rf /opt/local, which should take care of nearly everything.
many thanks, that sounds great.
I'll try it out immediately.
Ok I succeeded also, with thanks to this thread, more easily than I imagined. Biggest pain was registering at Apple to get Xcode (just let me get it please! yes, I am a developer from the lovely city of l;knl;kl in Andorra now send me the activation link darned!)
After that I ran 'sudo port install kdenlive' and went sleeping for a couple of hours. Then I had to run:
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
sudo chown $USER /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
- in order to get kdenlive to run. Also it did not get installed in /Applications/MacPorts/KDE4/ but in /opt/local/bin and in /opt/local/var/macports/software/kdenlive/0.7.7_0/opt/local/bin/, like happened to ramah12 before. I run it from /opt/local/bin now.
Another dumb question, is it possible to get Kdenlive from SVN so I can use the latest dev. version or is that impossible without becoming a Macports developer?
I remember having had to install Xports on my girlfriend's Mac as well.
But as far as I remember, it was on one of the installation discs. So no registration required.
Just for info, without guarantee for correctness.
You can still get Kdenlive from SVN. You can modify its Portfile (or better provide a local Portfile that supercedes it). Also, I use Qt Creator, and I can build and run Kdenlive SVN from within it. I think it's mainly just a matter of using cmake and open-ing the locally built .app.
I'm one of the lucky/patient people that was able to get kdenlive to successfully install by downloading individual dependencies one at a time. I tried following the instructions of changing ownership of some plists, I then rebooted and tried open -a kdeinit4, success and then i tried open -a kdenlive and the kdenlive icon shows up on my dock and then immediately closes flashing images of the ladybug bur reporter as well. Any suggestions? I'm so stoked that I even got this far with installing it.
I don't know if this will be useful (I know it would be useful to my alternate universe self, if he could find this post before installing), but here is my experience getting kdenlive working on an iMac running OS X 10.6.4.
First, I was lured in by the promise on the website that there is, somewhere, a binary package to be installed from something called Macports. I've never used Macports before, but I figured I'd give it a shot. The Macports installation worked as advertised, so I won't go into it. I already had X11 installed because of Gimp. Luckily because of iPhone dev, I already had xcode installed, which was handy once I realized that there were no binaries, and that it would be compiling on my system.
> sudo port -d selfupdate
> sudo port -u upgrade outdated
This gave me an error: "Error: No ports matched the given expression"
> sudo port install kdenlive
Ok, so this takes a long long time, and doesn't look very responsive.
I killed this, and tried again with:
> sudo port -v install kdenlive
I chose the verbose option -v because, frankly, it's impossible to know whether it's broken without some reassuring sign that it's doing something.
After hours, the build stopped with the following:
"Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: /opt/local/bin/ffmpeg is being used by the active ffmpeg-devel port.
Please deactivate this port first, or use 'port -f activate ffmpeg' to force the activation."
This seems to be saying that ffmpeg is being used by the installation, so the installation can't do something it needs to. I wasn't running anything else on my system.
So I obliged this with:
> sudo port -f activate ffmpeg
And again into the build with:
> sudo port -v install kdenlive
After more hours of compiling, it tells me to run the following:
> sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Preferences/KDE
This works as expected.
> launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
This returns the error:
nothing found to load"
So I looked through some forums and saw the suggestion by ddennedy to use this instead:
> sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
> sudo chown $USER /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
> launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
These ran fine
And then to start it up,
> open -a kded4
> open -a kdenlive
I then copied /opt/local/bin/kdenlive.app to my dock.
So now it's running. Playing around with kdenlive, I really think it's a great application, and very useful for people who want an editing alternative.
Given my experience above, I do have some small crits:
* I think you should stop saying that there are binaries, or that Macports installs binaries if there aren't any. Maybe there were before, but they're gone now? It's just frustrating to find out that this instead requires a multiple-hour build.
* Because of the long build times, I recommend the -v arg, or saying that it will take so long.
* Please document the proper command-lines for making this work on OS X after compilation, in lieu of a script that does this automatically.
* This is probably small compared to everything else, but I don't think an app should ever make a user manually start kded4, or make them set up the script to schedule it to start. I know that many linux users are fine with this, but it's not something Mac users usually do. If you're going to say you support OS X, I think you should support how OS X is used in the common case.
I'm not trying to be a complainer, but I really like what your project is doing, and I think improving the install will obviously get you more users, a larger sample of bug finders, and higher quality software in the end.
I totally agree with seanedunn's complaints about the install process. But all the mentioned suggestions would need some developer working on the mac platform and I am not sure if this is the case at the moment?
I filed two bugs about mac-specific things half a year ago and never got a response
Though I can not comment on the current state of this problems as I am no longer using mac os. Maybe this is already fixed.
Had a problem installing automoc, while installing kdenlive.
I'm running Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.8. It seems that automoc had a problem running some shell commands, I took a look in the log but could not find anything at all... did anyone run into this type of problem?
I just sent patches to update Portfiles for Kdenlive 0.7.8, mlt 0.5.10, and frei0r-plugins 1.2.
They are not yet applied, but I expect any day now. Please make sure you upgrade ffmpeg or ffmpeg-devel and mlt in the process. The mlt port now works with either ffmpeg or ffmpeg-devel again since MacPorts has updated ffmpeg to v0.6. You can use, for example, 'sudo port -n upgrade ffmpeg' to upgrade ffmpeg without upgrading all of the dependencies, which helps to speed up the process. Repeat that for mlt, frei0r-plugins, and kdenlive.
I improved our documentation about installing on OS X including how to make kded4 run automatically at login and how to add Kdenlive to the Dock.
Had to create a new account due to losing my password, but anyway.
I can now report successful installation of kdenlive on Mac OSX 10.5.8, Macbook Pro 15. I've been trying for months and a number of issues prevented it from working. Without detailing my trials and tribulations, let's just say first that before starting, make doubly sure that X11 and the xcode are the very latest versions for your OS. Ditto for MacPorts. Follow all instructions to the letter. If you have already gone down the path without the proper foundations, you will get all kinds of errors: dependencies will fail, etc... after hours of compilation and you will be frustrated. Your best option then is to follow instructions for completely uninstalling MacPorts and all its installed programs: http://guide.macports.org/chunked/installing.macports.uninstalling.html.
Then start over with the instructions here: http://www.kdenlive.org/user-manual/downloading-and-installing-kdenlive/.... Where I ran into a wall was in reading the first line 'sudo chown -R $user ~/Library/Preferences/KDE'. I could not see the tilde in my terminal or on the web page, where I was trying to do what the install instructed. I thought it was a dash. I found my error by accident, after Googling, on this site (where the author made that exact point in one of his responses to a comment): http://n0tablog.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/installing-krusader-orthodox-fi.... When I increased the text size large enough, it was painfully obvious. As soon as I made the change, executing the commands, and launched kdenlive, it did not crash and took me through the initial configuration.
I hope this helps anyone who experiences what I did.
Now I have only one issue left. I started with the instruction tutorial on how to use it and it crashes. It crashes when I put in a video clip several minutes long. It gets to around 40 seconds into it and blows up. Even though I saved the project and can reopen it, if I play it, boom. Kdenlive does not do that when I put in still images on another project I'm trying. It plays through just fine. The video files are .mov clips loaded from a JVC Everio camcorder.
Any ideas on this one? If I find it first, I'll post again.
Did you know that in the last 2 days, mlt, frei0r-plugins, and kdenlive ports were all updated to their newest versions?
So, after getting all of that done, you can upgrade. :-) If you use 'port -n upgrade ...' on individual ports, then the -n option will prevent updating all dependencies. I do not think you will want to take the chance of upgrading all of Qt and KDE at this point.
As for your crash, I am not sure what to say. I do test it with a variety of files, but not much complex projects. Maybe see if the crashing is limited to that camera's file types by trying some other videos.
Thanks, ddennedy, I had read your post about the update and I have tried to do just that, but no luck. It simply returns to the bash prompt immediately. I'm afraid I am faced with blowing everything away yet once more and putting up with hours of compilation, although I believe I will try the Qt and KDE upgrades. Can't hurt, I figure.
On the crash, it did seem to be related to choosing the correct video format, but I'll deal with that later. First thing is to get that upgrade.!
Well, the upgrade went well with 'sudo port -d selfupdate' and sudo port -u upgrade outdated'. Kdenlive now seems much more stable. Am now trying to burn a DVD to see how it will come out.
Many thanks for your contributions,
Heh, yeah, you probably did not selfupdate or sync prior to attempting to upgrade the individual packages. I did not leave step-by-step instructions.
I finally figured out why kdenlive wouldn't ever load for me. It was because of a permissions issue that was caused by my Macintosh HD drive being checked off as "Locked." Unfortunately I've attempted to rebuild kdenlive twice and have gotten stuck at the same point.
It always seems that either py26-numpy can't build itself and requires a modification to the portfile to make it so arch flags won't being read. py26-numpy will then successfully build but cause avahi port to hang continuously at the configuration step. No one at macports has really offered me a workable solution. I guess I'll attempt to rebuild from scratch once more and see if the issue comes up and if anyone has an suggestions on what to do with py26-numpy.
I successfully built it in Macports 1.9.1 and 10.6.4. Also word to the wise, reinstall XQuartz after the latest OSX security update as it breaks the X server everytime. Its not perfect though and its running at 180% CPU and slightly choppy. I'll post something in the forum I suppose to see if anyone has a recommendation.
I've gone through several attempts installing kdenlive, including wiping out one of my cloned volumes, doing a fresh install of Mac OS X 10.5.8, fully updated, and installing MacPorts subversion. After hours of compiling, I'm left with one error. It is the "Qt qmake not found". All other dependencies seem to have gone through. If anyone can shed any light here, I would be very relieved. And it would keep me from going through another lengthy install.
Here's the tail end of the process:

If this does not provide enough info, I will be glad to provide anything requested. Let me add that I have done a sudo port clean --all all, updating, and retrying kdenlive install with the same end results.
Follow up: I am stuck. I cannot get past the "Qt qmake not found!" point. I've done svn, source, package installs on this Mac. I've cleaned, updated, and tried over and over to install. It's not going to happen. Not even a local port can complete without an error; Portindex will not parse the Portfile created by "Touch Portfile". Copying a modified Portfile (PortGroup KDE 1.1) produces the "+universal_command" error. And Googling for related topics produces no usable results. I am stymied at every turn.
Trac macports has not worked and I do understand the developers are very busy all over the place after looking all around. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
qt4-mac provides /opt/local/libexec/qt4-mac/bin/qmake
On my system, /opt/local/bin/qmake is symlinked to that file along with a bunch of other q utilities. I did not manually make all of those links so it must have been part of that package install.
Having a very similar issue to markzymanski above... I posted a thread in the "install from source" area, but it hasn't gotten any response there - dunno if people consider macports not installing from source, so I figured I'd link what I have come up with so far here and see if any further eyes get on it in this thread. Let me know if anyone would like further details on anything or has any suggestions whatsoever.
I too, am getting errors. 64-bit 10.6.4. Never used MacPorts before, so it had to install 237 dependencies, which I let it do. In the middle it told me to install the Java dev kit from developer.apple.com, which I did and then proceeded with the installation.
Finally, I got some error, and I'm wondering if anyone can help me resolve it?
in the attached file kdenliveerror.txt is a transcript of what happens whenever I try to run "sudo port -v install kdenlive", as you can see, it doesn't try to install any dependencies, which should mean they are all installed already, right?
The error message references main.log, which I have also attached as main.txt.
This seems to be the same kind of Qt error (qmake) which recent posters have had, so I hope someone has come up with a solution!
Thankful for help,
Here reporting the same Cmake and qmake error as a few posters above. I had a mostly stable version running successfully until I upgraded outdated ports. I haven't attached the logs since they are the exact errors as the poster in #121, but I have the most recent if it would be useful.
Just wanted to get some feedback real quick about these errors - from my take on it, it appears to be CMake that is incorrect currently - the shared scripts it uses to try and find both phonon and Qt are not finding the appropriate items, though they are installed and appropriately functional.
Do any of the developers for kdenlive have any input or can you confirm that it is CMake that we should log a bug against? I want to get this resolved, but I want to put the ball in the correct court.
Having trouble building on MacOSX.6.4. I had create some symlinks as discussed this thread, but now I'm stuck.
Looking up the errno=22 on Google tells me maybe a -c flag is missing in a build file somewhere? But I don't have the slightest idea where to look.

I haven't gotten much farther with this, and I think the issue lies with the way CMake is setup currently (as the scripts with the bad paths and that fail to find the installed versions are from CMake's shared apps) - though I would like some confirmation on this.
Regardless, I believe the reason your symlinks aren't getting you any farther is because you are using the devel version of qt4-mac. I don't believe there is any issue with this, however you would need to make slightly different symlinks to move forward. For your symlinks using the devel version, you would need to replace any portion of the path that I noted as "qt4-mac" with "qt4-mac-devel". Then, you can move forward and see what other errors you get and what else you may have to hammer through.
I haven't had a lot of time to devote to this lately, but I'm going to keep working on it as time allows and I'll update with any new info I come up with.
Anyone still struggling with this problem, please see the fix noted by Jancha in the other thread I had started. The change to the portfile he notes works great. I now have a functional installation - now I just need to learn how to use it and see what's what.
Thanks much to Jancha and Romans for the information.
I'm stuck on the final step of the install process:
%open -a kdeinit4
Unable to find application named 'kdeinit4'
%open -a kded4
Unable to find application named 'kded4'
All the dependencies are installed correctly, so I'd like some advice, please.
Maybe your PATH is not yet updated. Try opening a new terminal window or rebooting.
I recently updated KDE to 4.5.4 (everything was working fine of 4.5.3) however now, whenever kdenlive tries to open up the file dialog, I get an error message:
Could not start process Cannot talk to klauncher: The name org.kde.klauncher was not provided by any .service files
I'm using OS X Snow Leopard, installed (successfully) from MacPorts, and have searched extensively for a solution/workaround to this problem. This seems to be a KDE thing, as another user is reporting that all kinds of KDE programs are failing with this error, however I'm wondering (a) if anyone else has experience this, and (b) what they've done to solve it.
BUMP. Some assistance regarding the Klauncher issue would be greatly appreciated.
my problem is maybe a little more simple and obvious
I'm on macosx snow leopard 10.6.6, xquartz 2.6.0
SO i've run the install form MacPorts, and after that i ran sudo port clean kdenlive, wich maybe i should not have made that much early, but after that i ran the commands advised in the help on this site, wich worked up to the point where the terminal is unable to find both kdeinit4 app and kdenlive (with commands open -a kdeninit4 and open -a kdenlive). after that i looked in /opt/local/bin and there was a kdenlive app, wich i opened with no result (doesn't respond) and there was no kdeinit4, just kdeinit4_shutdown and kdeinit4_wrapper.
So did i do something wrong ? like not executing the post intall commands in the right order ? or clean too early ?
and also during the install, there was this message :
To fully complete your installation and make python 2.7 the default, please
sudo port install python_select
sudo python_select python27
and later it repeated, speaking about the python26 this time. Wich should i choose ? i have select python27 now... mb should not have ? but didn't seem to have connection to my main problem, which is there is no kdeinit4
Hi, I tried this once about 8 months ago on a macbook and had similar results with most kde programs not working. I did get some command line apps working, but not much else. Please let us know if you figure this out. Geoff
hm indeed it seems to be a common problem which i had... but i'm afraid that's beyond my competences :(
My take is that working KDE apps on OSX is largely mythical. Posting in the Building from Source forum leads to deafening silence. My suspicion is that KDE apps require a pretty substantial infrastructure to back them up, and that kind of thing tends to work poorly on OSX.
I built from a freshly updated macports. Build and install were successful, but launching with the provided instructions gets me an application that is stuck forever waiting for a signal that pretty clearly isn't going to come.
I have successfully run kdenlive (meaning the dock icon changed and it opened a window) by doing so as root. A simple ``sudo -H open -a kdenlive'', while kinda annoying for regular end-users, does the trick perfectly.
I'm guessing most people that are on a Mac who have installed kdenlive are also part of the ``admin'' group, so this shouldn't be too problematic. Temporary fix, but it'd be nice to not have to run as root.
EDIT:: On second thought, don't run it with sudo. The main application calls other little applications that won't inherit permissions.
EDIT 2:: On third thought, not even logging into root through the window manager works. There appears to be some sort of bug that's hosing the entire thing.
It has been quite a while since I've last posted, inexcusable I know. I did successfully install kdenlive on Snow Leopard and have used it, but I've had problems with burning DVD's. That is something I am still working on. However, I just noticed yesterday that kdenlive has been updated to version 0.8, and I spent yesterday updating my Macports. Is the new version available for install yet? I did a sudo port install kdenlive, but nothing has changed. I am hoping the 0.8 may fix my issues. Any suggestions?
I'm running Mac OS 10.6 on a recent MacBook Pro (2.4 GHz Intel Core i5, 4 GB memory), and I'm excited to start using Kdenlive. Yesterday I got the code (version 0.7.8) from MacPorts, compiled the program in Terminal following all the instructions on this site, and it seemed to build correctly.
I'm already having problems, however:
1. The program often runs very slowly - I press a button and have to wait several minutes for any reaction.
2. The clip monitor sometimes flickers when no video is playing.
3. Worst of all, the whole program always ends up suddenly crashing at some point - for instance, when I'm importing a clip, changing the Project Settings, pressing Play, or adding a Video Effect.
What am I doing wrong? Also, does anyone know when Kdenlive 0.8 will be available on MacPorts?
2. Do they flicker the whole time until you close kdenlive?
1. Is it only then that it runs slowly?
Since in this case I had the problem as well before the 0.8 release, afterwards it was fixed.
Regarding the MacPorts release, Dan is maintaining it, maybe he decided to wait for the next bugfix release of kdenlive (which should be released soon).
I'm interested in using Kdenlive, but I'm stuck at the installation. I'm using mac os 10.5.8 and my Xcode version is 3.1.4.
I'm following the instructions at http://www.kdenlive.org/user-manual/downloading-and-installing-kdenlive/...
When I run:
% sudo port install kdenlive
it gets all the way to
---> Building libssh
Error: Target org.macports.build returned: shell command failed (see log for details)
Error: Failed to install libssh
I think this error has been entered already at MacPorts:
Since this bug report ticket is only 3 days old, maybe someone's working on it?
Could I try something else to make the installation work?
I am a new user on Mac and I try to install kdenlive on it,
it's not working
I get that

can I run Kdenlive under MacBook Pro 13" i7 2.7 10.6.8??????
I don't understand how, I get stuck
somebody can help me, I just need to now how to install kdenlive on a macbook 13" intel i7 2.7, is not so easy, can you tel me step by step how I have to do,
I can run Kdenlive8.0 on MacBook Pro 8.1
it run like a charm, exept aquisition
so now I am waiting for a Thunderbolt DD
Thank's to the dev team who do the macports
Kdenlive had quit working when I upgraded to Lion and I left it alone for a while. But I have come back to try to solve some issues and I got some but not all. First on the Mac, I had to completely uninstall kdenlive and MacPorts. Then went right back and reinstalled MacPorts, followed by Kdenlive. Thanks to the tips by Michael Allen Warner (http://www.kdenlive.org/forum/tips-building-kdenlive-mac-os-x), I was able to get past a hang up with smake and one or two others, and finish compiling. I now have version 0.8.2.1 with Xcode 4.3. It is working but in the Config Wizard on the last page it shows that Kdenlive doesn't have genisoimage or mkisofs, and xine. I am not able to install any of those. I am currently waiting for a rendering to finish to see if I'll be able to burn a DVD.
I did run into a curiosity during editing where I was adding a title clip. Whenever I clicked to select a color whether it was for a font, a font outline, or the background, the color dialog appeared behind the title editing box and I couldn't see it until I moved the box to uncover it. Weird. I am sure I will find some other curiosities in playing with it some more.
Now, onto my other problem. I also run openSuse 12.1 on my home PC and had no trouble whatsoever installing Kdenlive, though I did have to remember to install ffmpeg, mlt, and a couple other dependencies as well. It runs well and seems stable, although it will not allow me to render regardless of which profile I select. It quits with a corrupted file every time. I could sure use some help with this one as I like it much better than the one on my Macbook Pro. It at least allows me to change themes whereas the Mac only gives the default theme (not a real big problem, but still...).
Any ideas on either of these questions?
Update: on the Mac - rendering completed, but I am unable to use the DVD Wizard because of no mkisofs, even though cdrtools is installed.
Mlt failed to install after
$sudo port install kdenlive
$sudo port install mlt
which fails because of frei0r-plugins so
$sudo port install -d frei0r-plugins
